NSSI unfair dismissal case settled in mediation

It has been over one year since we helped and supported some of our members in their efforts to sue Nippon Steel Sumikin Intercom (NSSI) over their dismissal after 19 years of work, but the General Union is pleased to announce that the case has finally been settled. ("Fired? Here's What Some Union Members Did About It"; "Suing Nippon Steel - Update")

 

The case was settled in court via supervised mediation. This was a personal case, as the plaintiffs are the members themselves, not the General Union as a whole, so our members and their lawyers are not able to disclose the results to us. However, as one member put it: "We'd never have been able to do this without the General Union."

Fired? Not getting your rights? Worried about your employment? You don't have to just shut up and take it. You can do something about it! Our union has proved this again and again - both in and out of court (read "Complete victory in IES court case over shakai hoken").
